Overview

This offbeat roadside attraction features 10 graffiti-covered Cadillacs standing upright in a row, buried nose-first in the ground. The sculpture is the brainchild of Amarillo millionaire Stanley Marsh III, who chose classics dating from 1948 to 1963, the "Golden Age" of the American automobile.

It was cool to see this place. My pre-teen twins enjoyed "tagging" their names on the cars. But you can tell they are dated. But still a cool stop to make and visit.

Showing its age, and starting to lose its appeal. Public art piece for which you’re encouraged to leave your mark by painting the Cadillacs. However, when you step back and see the litter and empty spray cans tossed casually to the ground, the appeal wanes.

This is just an odd thing to me. Cars half-buried and graffitied in the middle of the Amarillo desert. But it was also fun to tag a car and see so many years of such a random tradition. I had no idea this even existed,...More

I have wanted to visit since I was a kid. I love that people leave their excess spray paint behind and watching everyone from tourists to families enjoying this unique place made the wait with it.

We loved our stop at Cadillac Ranch. Don’t try to do a drive by - take the time to park and walk up. It’s well worth it.

Always fun for kids to spray paint a car and not get in trouble!! Truly, it was breathtaking to see those cadillacs half buried and so colorful in the middle of the desert. Be sure to bring your own spray paint!

The only parking is on the shoulder of the frontage road. There were RV's parked there when I visited.
